Short Summary created by simon3, wicklore  21 May 2015
There is space for 1 car to park at a gate without blocking it at T207 619 A. From here a nice track leads up through the trees and it is easy to use a couple of tracks to find the trig pillar and remains of a cairn at the summit. Ignore a reference to the ‘Green Link’ route on the waymarker post unless you have read an information board on a nearby road on the way to the starting point.
Gorey, Courtown and other villages of the North Wexford coast are visible from the summit, and there is a nice view out across the Irish Sea. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/998/comment/5757/
